Every year, the Popular Culture Association (PCA) honors the highest quality of scholarship in popular culture studies. This year’s PCA Awards were swept by books nominated by university presses. Books from the University of Missouri Press, University of Nebraska Press, University of Oklahoma Press, University of North Carolina Press, University of Pennsylvania Press, University of Texas Press, and the MIT Press took top honors in each category.
“These are the Oscars of popular culture scholarship,” Lynn Bartholome, Executive Director of the PCA, said, “These awards are highly coveted and the competition is fierce. Congratulations to the winners!”
Recovering Native American Writings in the Boarding School Press edited by Jacqueline Emery received the Award for Best Edited Collection in Popular Culture and American Culture.
